From Corey Woodring

"Thank you for taking my question: at the end of the Brand New Day arc there were covers of all the issues during that arc, I am an avid collector of ASM yet at the end I saw two Colbert covers, did the "other" Colbert cover actually go on sale?, I have not seen it #573, 2nd Colbert ASM cover, can you help?"

Thank you

Hi there, Corey.

I had to turn this question over to a couple of our intrepid Spidey experts, and here's what they had to say:

Peter Kroon:

"This cover does NOT exist. It was printed in the Official Marvel Index #13 and Al asked Marvel, they told him, it does not exist. Now they printed again in ASM 647 and I pointed it out to (editor) Steve Wacker and this is the reply I got:

"That cover almost saw print, but we ended up doing something else.

Since we had it, I thought it'd be a cool little Easter Egg for the fans."

Al Sjoerdsma:

"Yeah, at the time of Index #13, I was under the impression that it had been released. When I found out differently, I had the Note for ASM #573's index entry changed for the TPB edition. The book still shows the cover but now says, "The 2nd printing Colbert cover shown here was produced but not released."

"

There you have it. Thanks for your question, Corey, and thanks for reading.
